All-new three-cylinder, 1.5-liter EcoBoost powerplant from Ford

At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Ford Performance has launched its next-generation Fiesta ST, which houses an all-new three-cylinder, 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine. In the ST the unit is said to deliver 200ps, 290Nm of torque and an anticipated 0-62mph acceleration of 6.7 seconds.

It uses technology including turbocharging, high-pressure fuel injection and twin-independent variable cam timing to deliver optimized performance and fuel efficiency.

The engine’s three-cylinder architecture delivers naturally high torque at low rpm. Performance is further boosted by a new turbocharger that uses an optimized turbine design to build boost pressure faster and minimize lag for a more responsive driving experience.

The 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine also features Ford’s industry-first cylinder deactivation system for a three-cylinder engine, for further reduced CO2 emissions of an anticipated 114g/km.

A new combination of port fuel injection and direct fuel injection technology helps deliver high power and responsiveness alongside reduced CO2 emissions, with a particular increase in fuel efficiency under light engine loads.
